Razer's best headsets are on sale for a steal ahead of Black Friday

Black Friday is the best time of year for audiophiles looking to score big on discounted headsets. Whether you're in the market for a pair of wireless earbuds or want a headset to go along with your PS5 or Xbox, there are plenty of deals to go around. Ahead of Black Friday, a ton of Razer headsets have been discounted at multiple retailers. If you're unfamiliar with Razer, just know that it makes some of the best, high-quality headsets in the business.

Some of its more popular models, the BlackShark and Kraken, are heavily discounted today. You can save $50 on the excellent BlackShark V2 Pro, bringing the price all the way down to $130, or go with the cheaper Kraken X model at only $30 if you aren't looking to spend a ton of money.

Get these heavily discounted Razer headsets

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro | $130

$130 at Amazon $130 at Best Buy $130 at GameStop

The Razer BlackShark V2 Pro is a wireless headset that provides long-lasting comfort. Boasting THX 7.1 spatial surround sound on PC and compatibility with both Xbox and PlayStation, it's an excellent choice for gamers. Its 24-hour battery life can easily keep it running for a week before most people will need to charge it.

Razer BlackShark V2 | $70

$70 at Amazon $70 at Best Buy $70 at GameStop

The BlackShark V2 may not be as advanced as its Pro counterpart, but it's nonetheless another great choice. With cooling gel-infused ear cushions and a 3.5mm wired connection, you can wear it all day long without irritation. Best of all, it still supports THX 7.1 spatial surround sound for audiophiles who aren't keen on listening to stereo.

Razer Kraken Ultimate | $60

$60 at Amazon $60 at Best Buy

At $70 off, you won't find a better deal on this Razer Kraken Ultimate. Though it's wired and only meant for PC thanks to its USB connection, it boasts most of the same features as the Razer BlackShark. Even better, it has a dedicated toggle for its 7.1 spatial surround sound so that you can truly hear the difference it makes between stereo.

Razer Kraken X | $30

$30 at Amazon $30 at Best Buy $30 at GameStop

The Kraken X is a lightweight headset for people on a budget, but that doesn't make it bad. Quite the contrary, it's a great headset that also (once again) supports 7.1 surround sound. It seems to be a running theme with Razer. It may not have all the bells and whistles of more premium headsets, but it's an excellent choice if you don't want to break the bank.

Razer Barracuda X | $70

$70 at Amazon $70 at Best Buy $70 at GameStop

Offering multiplatform compatibility and 20 hours of battery life, the Razer Barracuda X is another appealing option. Switch between PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Android seamlessly through a wireless connection, or use the 3.5mm jack to connect it to anything else.

You can't go wrong with any of these headsets, so choose whichever suits your needs the most. As nice as the BlackShark V2 Pro is (and I can personally attest to its quality), you may find yourself better suited for a cheaper model. I've also tested out the Razer Kraken X, and despite being so affordable, it doesn't skimp on features.

Spotify Q1 beats on sales of $2B with monthly active users up 31% to 286M

The coronavirus may be decimating some corners of the economy, but the impact on the digital music, as evidenced by the world’s biggest music streaming company, appears to be minimal. Today Spotify reported its earnings for Q1 with revenues of €1.848 billion ($2 billion at today’s rates) and an inching into a positive net income of $1 million. Monthly active users (not total subscribers) now stand at 286 million, with paid (premium) users at 130 million and ad-supported monthly active users at 163 million. Ad-supported users are growing at a slightly higher rate at the moment, at 32% versus 31%, Spotify said. Spotify beat  analysts’ forecasts on both sales — they had on average been expecting revenues of $1.86 billion — and EPS, which had been forecast to be -$0.49 but came in at -$0.20 on a diluted basis and $0.00 undiluted. The numbers underscore the positive signals we’ve had from the wider industry. More generally, we have seen a huge boost in streaming media services — includ

Adobe is giving students and teachers free access to Creative Cloud

Your university's IT admin will need to make an application for access. What you need to know Adobe is temporarily making Creative Cloud free for teachers and students. The offer is aimed at enabling them to continue being productive as they work and study from home. Students cannot individually avail the promo, however, as the application for access needs to be made by a university's IT admin. As universities around the world shut their campuses and organizations ask their employees to work from home, many tech companies are making their products available to educational institutes free for use. Google and Microsoft have both made their large-scale communication and videoconferencing tools free for everyone, and now Adobe is temporarily giving free Creative Cloud access to students and teachers. The subscription, which usually costs $79.49 per month, will give affected students and teachers access to the entire range of Adobe's applications, such as Photoshop

Google's new Guest Mode is like incognito mode for Google Assistant

Your interactions with Google Assistant will not be saved when Guest Mode is turned on. What you need to know Google Assistant is getting a new Guest Mode for privacy-conscious users. When it's turned on, the virtual assistant will not save any of its interactions with you. Turning it on and off is as simple as a single voice command. Google this week announced a new Guest Mode for its virtual assistant that's designed with privacy-conscious folks in mind. A simple "Hey Google, turn on Guest Mode" will ensure that none of your interactions with Google Assistant are collected by the company and nor will they be used to 'personalize your experience' — often an indirect way of referring to targeted ads. When it's on, the Assistant will play a special chime to let you know. Smart displays with Assistant will also show a guest icon on the screen. And you can always check for yourself by saying, "Hey Google, is Guest Mode on?" Even with G
